Forums - Gaming Discussion - xenosaga remaster possible?

The entire trilogy has subtitles like that, and all of them are named after books by Friedrich Nietzsche (Der Wille zur Macht, Jenseits von Gut und Böse, and Also Sprach Zarathustra). 

As far as the remaster is concerned, I'd get it if it ever releases in Europe. When the games were originally made the only one of the trilogy that was released in Europe was the second episode, so a remaster would be my first chance at playing the first and third games in the trilogy. 

Did you play Xenosaga: Episode 2 without playing 1 & 3?
Epi 2 was sort of the black sheep of the saga. Namco started interfering with the development, and decided to cut content to save it for Epi 3. Fired one of the writers (Soraya Saga) who later wrote about what happened in her blog. The game was at that point supposed to be a series of 6 games. But due to Episode 2 underperforming (partially thanks to Namco) they decided to wrap things up in the third game.
In spite of that, I felt it was still a significantly better game than Epi 2, so if you enjoyed it, hopefully you'll love Epi 3.

Yeah, I've only played episode 2. It was the only one that was ever released in Europe. The game came with a DVD that contained the first game's cutscenes as one continuous movie, so I knew the story up to the second game, but then the third one was also never released in Europe.

Oh yeah, now that you mention it, I remember that DVD. I was also in the PAL region, but I had a modded PS2 so I imported the Xenosaga games. (Couldn't go with the PAL version for Episode 2 because the save file wouldn't be compatible with the North American version of Episode 1.)



i would be a little sad because the value of the originals might go down, but whatever.



Muda Muda Muda Muda Muda Muda!!!!

I see that as a good thing personally.

Let's hope it's a remaster. I would certainly be interested in getting it.

Hope they do all 3 then...

Did you play them even? Because episodes 1&2 are boring af. 

I say this as a huge fan of everything Xeno.

 

Episode 3 though, it went back to Xenogears levels of good, but obviously with a much lesser scope.

 

I'm ok if they just remaster the third one and make a recap of 1&2. It's worth playing. With that said, i am over Xenosaga. It's not like it's gonna get more installments and really, the third was the only one worth playing and i already did that.

 

I dunno why (well, i kind of do), but this just makes me want a continuation of Xenoblade X.
